K Brothers Pollination And Honey
From naturally treated, antibiotic-free Washington hives. Buckwheat/Mixed Flower Raw Honey is a slightly lighter touch than our mono cultural Buckwheat. The bees found other flowers to add to their mix, most likely clover. This has produced a honey that has the deep, earthy buckwheat flavor, but a bit softer and less intense. Buckwheat/Mixed Flower Raw Honey is from naturally treated, antibiotic-free hives. (Prices & Availability)

K Brothers Pollination and Honey is a family company, lead by Stan Kolesnikov (thus K Brothers).
A few years back, Stan began to add some non-family employees, but the core of his business remains family.
Stan and his siblings are second-generation beekeepers: their father and uncle both kept honeybees in Uzbekistan. When Stan was in his 20’s he started keeping bees here in the U.S. while working with Lynn Haitt, of Haitt and Son’s Honey Company.
K Brothers manage their bees without any hard chemicals. Instead he uses an oil-based essential oil patty to help the bees keep their immune systems up to speed and battle varroa mites. Stan’s got a great success rate, and admits that he “enjoys the challenges of keeping the bees healthy and alive.
